Episode 88 — Mr. Nanny: LIVE!

Recommended Posts

Nobody mentioned that the girl was Madeline Zimmer. She went from Mr. Nanny to The Nanny to doing some rough stuff with David Duchovny. Zimmer really is always casted as a messed up girl with a dead mother and an oblivious father.

Such a great episode. Anyone else catch the lame homophobic jab from Sherman Hemsley's character during the tutu scene? After hearing about Corddry's daughter's reaction to the "300 pound man in tights" line, I was really hoping for her analysis on "And I used to share a hotel room with you!"

I feel like Mr. Nanny is the sequel to No Holds Barred. After releaizing he killed two people in his match against Zeus Rip has started having night terrors. He changes his name but can't give up the wrestling. These are hulks dark knight movies. Zeus is bane and thanatos is the joker. Could the bounty hunters from suburban commando be the league of shadows and complete our trilogy? Rip had to get his power from somewhere. Why not from being galactic commando?

By the way, HDTGM, there is a word for "so bad it's good" and that word is rismal. As in ris "laugh" and mal "bad": laughably bad.

 

Which leads to a game I like to call "How Mal?"

  • Dismal - Simply bad. Not a complete waste of your time but not bad enough to recommend to others (Winter's Tale)
  • Rismal - So Bad It's Good. The sweet spot! (No Holds Barred)
  • Abysmal - So terrible you dispise the very existence of the movie and the time you will never get back having watched it. (Deck The Halls)

The only thing I remember from watching this movie as a child is the way they cook baked beans. and the line "out of the can, and into the man".

Is it just me or does June sound drained and slow since Color of Night? She seems more ponderous, slower...side effect of the pregnancy? I don't know...probably just me.

 

Also, I thought the "finding porn in the woods" thing derailed No Holds Barred for almost 11 minutes, but thanks, Rob Corddry, for the whole hardware store thing, that REALLY simulated Xanax for most people.

What was cut out before started talking about how they had wrestled for WCW? A similar thing happened for the No Hold Barred Episode when Jason interrupted an audience member.

The finding porn in the woods was the highlight of that episode, for me at least.

Indeed. If discussions about finding porn in the woods do nothing for you, you've certainly never found porn in the woods! I remember that topic coming up on like three different podcasts that I listened to that week, which was weird. They talked about it here of course, it came up on "Go Bayside", and I'm sure I heard it somewhere else. Has there been some sort of comeback that I'm not aware of on some 80s-themed TV show or movie? Did someone find porn in the forest on an episode of "The Goldbergs"?

Jason didn't interrupt an audience member during no holds barred, the audience member's question was why do the men always interrupted June. June was about to respond and Jason jokingly interrupted and said that he would respond. It was actually a funny moment, but I get why they edited out the whole exchange.

Just you, I think.

Okay I remember it being something like that. But what about in this episode it seemed like there was a skip in the episode where something was removed?

Unfortunately, I was only at the NHB episode, sorry.

I was hoping the mini-ep would be up

Today. I am so excited to hear Peter Fonda comment on ER 2.

Would it be too much to hope that they keep trying to get bigger guests like this? I would fucking die if they could maybe get Jon Voight for "Baby Geniuses 2" or something. It's too bad (but not really) that they've already done "Anaconda".

I wanted to post this earlier, but I was out of the country so my interneting abilities were limited. NERD PROBLEMS.

 

Anyway, if anyone cares, there is this weird trope in a lot of the movies of the period where, to denote Troubled Youths, a movie would have the kid listening to very loud metal or hip hop. It's a very cheap and ineffective gimmick because, like a lot of the stuff in this movie, it makes no sense.

 

In an example of obscure shit that interests me but probably nobody else, In Mr. Nanny, the son is listening to the classic thrash metal band (and by "classic" I mean, "underrated to thrash metal fans and totally unknown to everyone else") Rigor Mortis performing their song "Foaming at the Mouth," a track originally recorded as a demo and then included as a bonus track on their debut, self-titled LP. Why is some 11-year-old rich kid listening to this? I have no idea. I mean, it's awesome this relatively unknown thrash band is in a "family comedy," but it serves no narrative purpose and is just some random noise to most people. Maybe a fan of the band worked in the editing or sound department?

as soon as I noticed the dog being thrown in the water. that was it for me with this movie. I could not get the endless amount of mind blowing questions out of my head. like who's dog is that, was that intentianal or accidental. or was he simply teaching his dog to swim the easy way.

 

When we got to the pink tutu, I started listen to the podcast on my stereo and watched the rest of the movie with the audio down... do you guys really watch all of this movie or do you find your self fast forwarding the film.

 

When movies are this bad I have a lot of trouble paying attention. Find myself looking at my iphone a lot, checking messages and such.

 

Getting back to that dog. My theory is on this is subject: if your heart is pure and your fath is strong. You're dog will walk on water, miracles do happen.

To be fair this plot was basically a copy of Man on Fire, minus the kids being killed and the bodyguard going on a revenge spree. And instead of the family hiring a burnt out alcoholic to guard their child, this movie has them hiring a guard from a less than reputable security firm.

I didn't watch the movie, so I thought the clip of the dog being thrown into a canal was like a dude on a bridge tossing his dog into the water to drown. I was horrified that June kept wanting to watch it.

I'm a little behind in my HDTGM listening, so maybe this is addressed in the mini-ep, but...

 

I can't believe no one mentioned that Mother Love should have become the nanny. She's raised 4 kids of her own, the brats know and trust her, she's tough enough to handle them, and she gives Sean/Terry/Hulk advice every step of the way. SHE'S YOUR NEW NANNY, DUM-DUM.

 

Shift Hulk over to the Cook position (he is arguably more qualified to be a cook than a nanny - he can at least make bomb-ass sandwiches) and let Mother Love these children.

I think that was an obvious juxtaposition made intentionally by the writer/director, but that would prob be giving the developers too much credit. on a bizarre side note,I'd love to see Hulk's character and Mother love get married or at least get caught bumpin uglies. Would that not be horrendous / hilarious?

more like a jab at closet transvestites. How is that lame? it's actually a pretty logical reaction.

Oh come on. You might have a fair point if his reaction was something more generic like, "And I thought I knew everything about you!" But the very specific reference to sharing a hotel room is totally implying that Sherman Hemsley's character is grossed out by the idea of sleeping in such close proximity to this newly-revealed sissy.
